The Atlantic Union Conference will host its first Union-level Adventurer Bible Game (ABG) on Sabbath afternoon, March 30, at South Lancaster Academy. Twenty-four teams from across the Atlantic Union are participating at this level. The union level is the second of the two levels in which the teams can participate. Adventurers in grades 3 and 4 studied Luke chapters 1-24 for several months in preparation. ABG is designed for families with two- to six-person teams comprised of an Adventurer and a parent/guardian studying and playing together. The program is created to challenge older Adventurers to use their reading skills and incredible ability to memorize the Bible. Join us in congratulating the Adventurers and their families on making it to the union-level ABG games!
